Psalm 23

Protection Prayer

Loving Heavenly Father,

You created us and you sustain us.

You do amazing miracles.

You often save us from problems and dangers - and many times you keep us from even knowing that something harmful was coming toward us.

I want to thank you for all the times that you protected my young loved ones while they never knew they were moving toward hurt or harm. 

I pray in the Loving and Protective Name of Jesus,

A Friendly Reminder:

Be careful what kinds of TV shows and videos

that you allow in your home.

Many children are having their innocence taken

by the things that are coming from the internet and the media.

Protection Prayer

Lord of Love and Protection,

I pray that you will protect my little ones.

Protect them from sicknesses and accidents.

Protect them from people who would hurt or harm them.

Protect them from having their innocence stolen and their heart shattered.

Lord, help me to cooperate with you in order to create a safer and more "God-friendly" environment for them.

Guide me so that I can guide them.

I will learn to listen for your voice and yield to you.

I pray these things in Jesus' Mighty Name,

The Trinity

Children do not naturally understand that

Jesus IS God.

When a child is old enough...

We can help children, if we explain to them that when people say the word "God" they are usually referring to Father God. Yet, Jesus is as much God as Father God.

It is hard for children and adults to understand the Trinity.

I explain to children that Jesus is called the "Son of God" because he is generally in the role of a son - doing what the Father asks. But The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit are each co-equal, co-eternal, and co-powerful and each of them is fully God.

There is one God in three persons.

When Jesus came to earth, he was 100% fully God and 100% fully man.

Jesus did have to lay down some of his divinity in order to come to earth. For example, on earth he was in an earthly body and therefore, he could not be everywhere at once. 

Before Jesus came to earth as a baby,

he was everywhere at once.

God is omnipresent which means "he is everywhere at once."

So God the Father is omnipresent.

Jesus is omnipresent.

The Holy Spirit is omnipresent.

God is one, yet he is three persons or personalities. There is nothing else in the world like God.

The Trinity works together as ONE, and they are actually ONE.

So we can tell children that The Trinity is a mystery that we do not totally understand.
